Provincial government reaches tentative deal with Ontario Council of Educational Workers

The Ontario government has reached a tentative agreement with school staff, represented by the Ontario Council of Educational Workers.

OCEW issued a statement saying the deal was reached after several days of negotiations between the negotiating council, the Council of Trustees’ Association and the county.

It says the preliminary deal will go to members for ratification across the province in the coming weeks.

The OCEW is made up of six unions representing thousands of public and Catholic school board employees across the province, including resource facilitators and maintenance and construction workers.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce released a release saying the deal shows the Progressive Conservative government can strike deals with education unions. Neither Lecce nor OCEW have disclosed the terms of the new contract.

The deal comes weeks after the province lifted the horns of the 55,000 educators represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees who walked out two days last month after the government passed a law that put them under contract and banned their right to strike. and pre-emptively invoke the Notwithstanding clause to guard against constitutional challenges.

That law was eventually repealed and the two sides have since ratified a new contract.
